  • Meditation Bell – 1st Mix

    This melody came to me directly from this morning’s meditation bell.

  • Ken Burns Slideshow Soundtrack in Apple Photos

    This is not mine! I was just playing with the slide show feature in Apple’s Photos application, and, when you choose the “Ken Burns” style, this is the music that plays. I Googled it with no results, and then SoundHounded it, but it came up unknown. Posting here to see if anyone knows the composer/musician.

  • Little 1 – Heartbeats Mix

    2015 March 15: added Milena’s sonogram of Kinich’s heartbeat in her womb, and little Sophia greeting me at the end. Also, added a gentle, subtle beat (kick, snare, two rides). And finally got around to transcribing the monologue, which was inspired by hearing the thrush of little Kinich’s developing heartbeat, and upon which the whole […]

  • Shoredrift

    An experiment with Ableton Live, Isotope Iris (the main layers of bells/chime samples– wow!), Applied Acoustic Systems’ Chromaphone (really malleable physical-modeling synth), and Live’s built-in toy piano samples.

  • Fade Away Into The Deep Blue

    I have tons of snips of music, and occasionally I go digging thru my library to find pieces that might fit together. That happened with “I Just Want to Fade Away” and “Deep Blue,” which just happened to both be in D keys (D Mixolydian and D Dorian, to be precise), very similar tempos (69 […]

  • The Third Letter

    The Third Letter

    Little Mama is dying. I wrote her some letters, and Milena told me she read them to her, and that she told everyone to make plans to go to Ft Worth for the big art opening in December. That makes me happy, to know that she wants to go. That project was a big one […]

  • 6: Amara, “Musical Minds” – Sun loves Earth, humming version

    A humming version of Amara (the 6th track/painting in Libba’s 11). In keeping with the no-lyrics theme we’ve already got going in the 11, this version replaces the original version’s sung lyrics with humming the melody. I like this version. It’s really sweet. I added a touch of reverb to the melody in this version, too. […]

  • 8: Ruethor, “Spyer Exitor”

    Smooth, silky, gentle & sweet waltz. Music for painting #8 of Libba’s 11. May 19, 2013 at 12:23AM

  • 7: Bravo, “Remember”

    Earthy, Gaelic-folky tune. Music for painting #7 of Libba’s 11. May 19, 2013 at 12:09AM

  • New Music Like Crazy!

    Man, I have been really inspired by the commission from Libba and Ron to create sounds for “Libba’s 11,” as I’m calling them. Very interesting project, right up my alley, as Ron asked for sounds at about a minute long– which has been about the length I’ve been doing with my voice jingles on my […]
